Probably after a good night out at Studio 54, Jeff Koons was walking through the streets of New York when he came across a pharmacy window: among the creams and painkillers was a shiny plastic heart. For Koons, this marvellously kitch object was irrresistible. He decided to make his own version but one hundred times bigger! Thus ‘Hanging Heart’ was born: this heart, made in both red and gold, belongs to ‘Celebration, a series inspired by his strong desire to represent the cyclicality of the year through festivity. This ‘fragile’ heart-shaped pendant is three-metres high and, along with the ribbon from which it hangs, weighs ‘only’ …a tonne! In addition to its celebratory meaning, the work also represents the idea of love: careful when you walk under it, you could fall in love forever with contemporary art!
